With the Apple App Store now open for business, you might be eager to play around, but to make these apps work you need the iPhone 2.0 software update ...

Well, according to some reliable sources, here it is ... direct download link (225MB).

Some notes:

  • This update has not been officially released yet, so if things go wrong, you're on your own.
  • This file, on a Windows box at any rate, is downloaded with the .ipsw.zip extension. To make it work you'll need to remove the .zip bit.
  • If you get it, you'll have to install it manually through iTunes (download the file and if you're on Mac press Option and click on Check for Update when on the iPhone page in iTunes, Windows users press SHIFT and click Check for Update).
  • This update will wipe all your data.
  • This update pack is NOT FOR THE iPod touch! No word on that yet.

Oh, and it seems that someone at Apple has a sense of humor ... ;-)

    Is Apple going to charge $20 for the ipod firmware?
    Loverock Davidson
    • No ... $10 ...

      or $9.95 or whatever...
      But I guess if you bought the last update too, that adds up to $20.
      Adrian Kingsley-Hughes
      • That is a little more reasonable

        I thought the last update was $20 but free to those who bought an ipod after a certain date.

    i too updated my unlocked iphone to 2.0.After 2 days of googling i found solution and it worked.I was able to restore it back to 1.1.4
    Steps:
    1.Restote your mobile using itune to 1.14 firmware(you can download it on net)
    2.the restore still leaves you with base band 04.05.04_G..so you need to downgrade this baseband to 04.04.05.For this you can use the ziphone patch 04.05.04_g(not ziphone)..this you can find on the net its available on rapidshare..Just use it and downgrade and erase and debug....after this the Modem Firmware in the mobile will be set to blank..dont try to unlock it yet..
    3.Using itunes(7.5) restore it back to 1.1.4.
    4.Now useiLiberty or any aother unlocking software...
    Thats it you have your iphone restored back to 1.1.4 and unlocked...

    Cheers
